Medical device manufacturer Nypro Inc. is in the throes of establishing a 60 million euro facility in Waterford, Ireland, that will create 200 new jobs. The site which will manufacture respiratory and injection devices for healthcare customers, is expected to start production in April 2014.

The firm's Bray, Ireland, facility, which supplies final packaging and assembly of drugs into the device, is also set to roll-out 100 jobs in the next 18 months, taking its workforce from 360-460 employees.

Chris Nother, vice-president, business development for Nypro Healthcare, told PRW that the company had selected Waterford to site its facility as it has a well-trained workforce.

"We have a great relationship with the Waterford Institute of Technology, which will support us with technicians and engineers. Foras Áiseanna Saothair (FAS) the Irish Training Alliance can provide us with general employees."

Kevin McClannon, director of programs and engineering for Nypro Healthcare Europe, added that energy efficiency will be a key feature the 200,000 square Waterford plant. "We are installing rainwater harvesting and solar panels. We have worked with Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) in order to develop more energy efficient cleanrooms, resulting in over 20 percent in energy savings."

Nother said the news that Florida-based Jabil Circuit Inc. had completed its purchase of Nypro in July will benefit the company's sites in Ireland.

The Jabil move was a bonus to Nypro as it would be able to integrate Jabil's optics and electronics technology where "previously we had to out-source it," he said.
